Author: Blizzard wanted a Diablo for handhelds

Shack News - The Stay Awhile and Listen series continues with author David Craddock as we lead up to the October 29 reveal of a chapter from his upcoming book. Today's stories revolve around a possible second expansion for Diablo 2 and a Diablo game for handhelds.

"Following Diablo 2's release, Blizzard North split into two teams ... kind of," Craddock said. "One team immediately started in on D2's expansion set, Lord of Destruction. The other team went into spitball mode, kicking around ideas for a new IP. But several other developers ventured into groups of two or three and put together proposals for smaller projects. One of those was given the working title Diablo Junior, a game tentatively planned for the Game Boy Color and/or the Game Boy Advance, depending on market share and other business-y factors (David Craddock, Diablo, Diablo Junior, Nintendo DS, Retro)
